Do you agree?
Computer and technology parts, even though they are made here, they generally do not fall off the truck or have cheap local outlets.
CPUs are more expensive here and a couple months out of date. Also true for DVD-RW drives and probably much more.
They don’t use internet shopping much in Taiwan; in the US this makes for fierce price competition.
OTOH, you can buy a computer custom assembled at 9PM on a Sunday.
Some local deals like boom-mike headsets for $NT55 exist. Great gift for friends back home you want to keep in touch with via Skype.
Does anyone know of a place to buy a second battery for my laptop computer? Many of these batteries are made in Taiwan, though I cannot buy a lot of 100. Mine is the HP f4809a/ F4812A 4400 mAh battery for my cheap $600 Presario 2100. Which I use for BitComet and Skype. They are about $100 in the US and $50 on eBay.
